ZUS contributions in 2023. How much will they be?

At the beginning, however, it is necessary to explain what the contributory system looks like in Poland. In the case of full-time employees, there is no problem. The amount of contributions depends directly on the amount of your salary. So the more you earn, the more premiums you pay.
